When Arabs Danced | 2018 | Belgium, Egypt, France, Iran, Morocco | 84 MIN

DIRECTOR: Jawad Rhalib

CATEGORY: DOCUMENTARY FEATURE FILM 

PREMIERE STATUS: Massachusetts Premiere


In the wake of the terror shockwave provoked by Daesh’s islamo-fascism, director Jawad Rhalib questions the many facets of Arab culture that have sadly been forgotten by western and middle-eastern media alike; its love for dancing and music, but also for literature, philosophy, and science. These aspects, though, willingly ignored by both racists and religious zealots and fundamentalists, have always been an integral part of the great texture of the Arab identity.  The film explores how islamic fascism has suffocated the freedom, creativity and all progressive values of the Arab society. When Arabs Danced is a reminder of what can still be (done) as it joyfully explores multi-layered complexities looking for a better tomorrow.
